Researchers at Georgia Tech are working to make ocean shipping more sustainable, in line with the U.N.'s International Maritime Organization's targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Valerie Thomas and Patricia Stathatou are leading the effort, investigating alternative fuels and conducting experiments to support sustainability assessments. Their work is part of a broader portfolio of shipping sustainability research at Georgia Tech, aiming to enhance the efficiency and sustainability of global supply chains. Stathatou envisions significant adoption of new fuels and technologies within the next decade.
